Re: Our Bus, Our Home

I love the penny backsplash!! I redid a table like that... glass top broke so I inset a piece of plywood and pennied it up...I Still haven't epoxy coated yet. Probably never will... looks pretty neat with a mix of shiny and dull pennies.


Yours looks great!!

I'm not big in the all wood look, but this looks nice.

Re: Our Bus, Our Home

Haven't posted in a while but still working, slowly but surely. Here's a quick update, I know, pics or it didn't happen, there's just not much to show at this point I'm afraid.

We've tested the plumbing and I'm happy to report no leaks, I highly recommend the PEX. At this point we have the bathroom sink plumbed and operational with shutoffs installed for the kitchen sink and the toilet, shower supplies are capped. The "cedar tongue and groove shower" has become an art project (did I mention I'm an artist ). After hours of research and a lot of head scratching, I've decided that the only way to keep my shower walls from growing, buckling, mildewing, rotting, turning black, stinking, etc. is to use them as a base for a fiberglass shell. I almost feel stupid at this point but I have to see it through. I'll post pictures later but basically what I've done is purchase a gallon of West System epoxy and associated special clear hardener, a package of woven roving fiberglass and enough 6 oz fiberglass cloth to cover the shower. After a coat of the CPES I coated the entire shower with a thin coat of the West epoxy. After carefully pulling the woven roving into strips (it looks like woven baling twine but it's made of glass) I used an oral syringe filled with epoxy and the roving strips to fill any gaps, round out the sharp corners in the back and bring every groove out flush with the board faces. When the roving is saturated with clear epoxy it cures translucent and tough as nails (and most importantly - waterproof). Once the grooves are filled (three strips of roving and epoxy, so far only one strip per groove has been placed and sealed) I'll set about covering the entire shower with the 6 oz fabric and with a few more coats of epoxy over that, I'll have clear fiberglass shower walls that'll look like coated cedar boards. ($800 and a hundred hours later). I don't recommend the wood shower idea to anyone, it'll look cool but jeez, what a project. Unfortunately, special clear hardener works best and cures crystal clear in 80 degree weather and won't cure in anything below 60. Not taking any chances so the shower is on hold until Spring weather.

Nope, used a Hepvo: http://www.hepvo.com/ membrane trap saves room and works without water. We'll use one on the shower as well cause you can install them sideways.

I plan to use the same too. I had a class C RV that when driving for a long distance the water would slosh out of the shower P-trap and it got stinky.
